FreeHand 10 won't work

Postby p_allan » Thu Jun 07, 2012 5:57 pm

Layers are not working. The panel is there but shows no layers.

Clip art is invisible. Can't make it show. Option for that in view window is grey. Many other options are grey.

FreeHand freezes. Can't save or save as.

Please help!

I have Rosetta. I am running OS6.8 and have the 002.5 update.

You may first think about if you changed anything in your system recently? How is it when you try to work in FreeHand in an other user account on that same computer? If it works there, the problem could be a corrupt preference file.

On occasion my Freehand will lock up so I can't save ( or save as ) and my artwork will sometimes disappear, but I can open a new window, then close it which solved this problem for me without having to restart.

Try trashing your preference-file. Open Macintosh HD / Users / Your_name / Library / Preferences and locate the file named com.macromedia.freehand.10.plist

Try relaunching FreeHand. You could also try a safe boot (start up with the shift key down) and a normal boot after that.
